Hi, Based on your post/description that it was not the laptop that was dropped and that all the connections are snugly fitted to where they should be, the dropping of the moused caused the laptop to be dead, then it is likely that the +5VDC of the mouse cable has shorted to the ground wire. The short is reflected towards inside the motherboard of your laptop. This +5VDC is common to all the USB ports, PS2 ports, and many other parts of the laptop. The short would open up a fuse somewhere inside. I can only surmise that the power supply is involved. You may need to check that the powersupply/AC adaptor (if present) is giving juice to your laptop with the use of a VOM, since as I understand it, simply plugging in your laptop to the mains would lit an indicator that ACpower is available. Normally a surface mounted fuse is on the motherboard right after the jack where the AC adaptor plug comes in and right before a reverse protection diode. If you are uncomfortable opening your unit and would not be in a position to do component level repair, you are probably better off seeking the services of a qualified service professional. Hope this give you and idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Let's start as simple as possible:
Do you have a loose connection / glitch at the power-connector? Check and solder (link to manual for disassembly is further down in this document)
To me this looks like a stuck key (not necessary one on the keyboard):
1. download and burn ubuntu 8.10 to cd.
2. boot _any_ computer with it, connect >1GB USB stick.
3. System --> Administration --> Install to live usb
4. Boot from live-usb-stick that you just created
5. open terminal (Applications --> Accessories --> terminal)
6. paste this: sudo apt-get install xev
7. paste this: xev
8. hover with mouse over white box
9. make sure not to press any keys or move the mouse. Now flip the screen or try to recreate a situation in which the task manager would pop up in windows.
10. what's the output in the terminal window? Try to pinpoint exactly how and when the events are generated.
There should be no event generated, when you physically flip the display (which means you don't have to replace the hinge).
Press every single key you can find on the laptop. Verify that each key generates exactly one event.
If you find that there is a series of events generated without any key pressed, try to clean the malfunctioning key. (Service manual for disassembly)
It might possibly be a broken hinge (20USD). Flipping the display and pressing soft keys (Q, rotate, e) does not generate events in xev. Any other button does.

SOURCE: Hi guys, during upgrade I did
Have you tried the hard reset? Try these instructions for a hard reset:
1. With the device off, press and hold Volume Up and Power.
2. Release the Power button when you see the Samsung logo, but continue to hold Volume Up until the recovery screen appears.
3. Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. Press Home to choose the selection.
4. Press Volume Up continue.
The Galaxy Tab should then go through the hard reset process.
